Plurality in how we believe and behave is one of our missions here at ESCP Business School, and our sense of community and school spirit help to foster this important aspect of who we are.
Our school’s various extracurricular activities and initiatives range from political discussions, to sports tournaments, to social, cultural, and networking events, and can be a source of growth and inspiration for students outside of the classroom.
Participating in any of these activities can help students learn to manage/work in a team, improve decision-making, cope with responsibilities, manage their time effectively, develop managerial skills, and more. Here are some extracurricular activities aimed at developing your full potential while studying at ESCP Business School.
The Regatta Is one of the Extracurricular Activities that Stands out for Teamwork and Networking
Each year, the Regatta gives students the opportunity to challenge themselves in new ways, and apply their teamwork and leadership skills to a practical setting.
Launched in May 2007, the annual ESCP Regatta sees students from across our six campuses gather on more than 40 sailboats in Italy. This provides an opportunity to additionally strengthen our sense of community spirit, while also allowing students to further evolve their decision-making, leadership, and teamwork skills.
The event is a significant one in ESCP’s overall calendar, and one that really allows students to expand their network by connecting with their peers. It serves as an invaluable bonding experience for participants, helping to foster connection.
The 2019 event saw more than 400 individuals taking part across 35 yachts sailing around Porto Ratondo, located in Italy’s island of Sardinia.
The Junior Enterprise Association Helps Students Put Business Knowledge into Practice
The ESCP Conseil, also known as its Junior Enterprise, is a student-run consulting firm that works in collaboration with a number of corporate clients on many different kinds of business solutions and ventures.
Being a part of this association offers students an opportunity to further expand their professional development by working on various projects, and helping to provide organisations with productive, personalised solutions to issues they may have, including market studies, business plans, mystery shopping, and satisfaction inquiries.
Students with a business-focused mindset will be able to help entrepreneurs, freelancers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), or groups of the CAC 40 index meet their goals.
The ESCP Ski Event Provides an Opportunity to Network with Major Employers
The annual ESCP Ski Event provides an excellent networking opportunity. Students will appreciate the chance to socialise with representatives from major companies, who attend the event seeking to recruit ESCP students. This means that the event provides a chance to demonstrate your potential to prospective employers, and expand your professional network.
This event also gives students the opportunity to network with one another, as students and alumni from each of ESCP’s six campuses attend every year. Organised by a team of students at ESCP Business School, the trip brings participants to the Italian Alpine village of Sestriere, a venue for numerous Alpine skiing events during the 2006 Winter Olympics.
Management Science College Students May Also Attend the Model United Nations
For those with a strong interest in global politics and international relations, this event is the best extracurricular opportunity for a firsthand experience in these fields. The annual National Model United Nations (NMUN) Conference in New York City gives students working toward their Bachelor in Management (BSc) at ESCP Business School a unique opportunity to participate in the world’s largest United Nations simulation, along with more than 5,000 students from various universities worldwide.
Held at the UN’s headquarters, the event sees students represent different countries to replicate the real-world United Nations structure. Students at ESCP’s London Campus also take part in the annual Yes to UN conference, which provides the chance to sharpen their skills in negotiating prior to the event in New York.
